Lawyers for a heavily pregnant British woman will plead tomorrow for her to be released from a Pakistani jail.

Khadija Shah, 25, from Birmingham, could face the death penalty after £3.2m of heroin was found in her luggage as she tried to leave the country in May.

Ms Shah, who is eight months' pregnant, denies smuggling. She is seeking bail to secure antenatal care.
